Capcom hosted a Mega Man (Rock Man) 30th Anniversary stream on Twitch this morning, and as expected unveiled some pretty great Mega Man news, with our first proper entry into the series in several years. Mega Man 11 is set to hit Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC late next year, and our first trailer is above.
On top of that, a Mega Man X collection was also unveiled featuring the entire Mega Man X series for players to revisit.
Capcom has debuted a beautiful new trailer for the upcoming HD-update to the fan-favorite, Okami HD. The new trailer shows us what to expect from the remaster, and its updated visuals. Okami HD will feature 4K support on the PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One X, and PC. Players will also get to choose to play in 4:3 ratio, or 16:9 widescreen format.
Okami HD releases in North America and Europe on December 12th, 2017, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Capcom has finally confirmed its long-awaited Okami HD/4K remaster with the announcement of Okami: Zekkei for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game releases in Japan on December 21st, with a physical release on the PS4 and PC releasing on December 13th.
Information is still scant on the title, but we know it will retail for 2,990 yen plus tax, with a limited edition version being released for 4,990 yen.
UPDATE: The game is releasing in North America and Europe on December 12th.
Capcom has unveiled the first batch of DLC costumes, available to players who pre-ordered the game. Those costumes are Warrior Thor, Evil Ryu, Gladiator Hulk, and Command Mission X. The game’s release is imminent this month, so if you’re hoping to get your hands on these babies, you might want to get on it.
However, which costumes you get depends on which version of the game you pre-order. The $59.99 standard edition only gets you Evil Ryu, and Warrior Thor. If you want all four? You’ll need to pre-order the $89.99 Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Deluxe Edition that includes the game and 2017 Character Pass or $199.99 Collector’s Edition that includes four statues, six LED Infinity Stones, and the Deluxe Edition of the game. Hit the jump to check out a trailer for the costumes.

Capcom has shockingly announced a new Puzzle Fighter title coming to iOS and Android mobile gaming devices. The game will play just like every other Puzzle Fighter, but now players will take control of characters from across the pantheon of Capcom properties, such as Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, Resident Evil, Mega Man, and Dead Rising.
The game is playable at PAX West this weekend, and will launch later this year.
Capcom has announced a partnership with iam8bit, in which they’ll be releasing a special limited edition cartridge re-print of Street Fighter II in honor of the series’ 30th Anniversary. The cartridge will be available in two colors: Opaque Ryu Red, and Translucent Glow-in-the-Dark Blanka Green. The collectible is limited to 5,500 pieces, with 1,000 randomly selected orders being the Blanka Green color variation.
The cartridge will carry the original game code, making it a full re-release of the original game, and is completely playable on NTSC Super Nintendo consoles.
Kotaku UK has a scoop, claiming that Okami HD is getting another re-release, this time on PlayStation 4, and Xbox One this holiday season. There’s no real information about the release, currently, but it’s a good chance that the title will receive PS4 Pro and Xbox One X support, with the PlayStation 3 version of Okami HD rendering the visuals in 4K, and the scaling them down.
Capcom is taking initiative in bringing many of its older titles to newer consoles, but in the process, most of their newer IP’s have taken a backseat, with new major titles being few and far between for the company at this point. It’s nice to see lesser-ported titles like Okami finally making the jump to systems such as the Xbox, though.
Sony’s E3 conference went about as expected, but on the other hand, it also had some insane surprises that no one would have ever expect, but they are damn sure welcome. While the majority of the show were updates to titles shown at last year’s E3, we were also given a few new projects that have been in the pipeline. Quite secretly, I might add.
Sony was absolutely a mixed bag this year. When they delivered, they delivered, but their misses were some pretty heavy missteps as far as interest. Hit the jump to check out the full rundown of the show.

James Wan, director of Aquaman, and producer of many successful modern horror franchises, has been tapped by Constatin Films and Screen Gems to produce a complete reboot of the popular franchise for the big screen. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter apparently was the final chapter in that story, and we’ll now see a new one, with a completely new cast.
No story details are available, or character for that matter. However, we do know that Greg Russo will be working on the script for the first of a planned 6-film franchise reboot. Hopefully, we see some familiar faces in these new films, as there is plenty of great ideas to work with in the Resident Evil world.
